Thumbs up homemade lures help me out

ive been talking to alot of the old hunters and they told me to lures 1 is frozen bacon grease and you hang it from a tree so it melts when the sun hits it and the second is smashed pumpkin they told me the deer walk right up to the bacon grease and start licking it and they pounce on the pumpkins anybody that has tried these lures let me know the outcome

Well, the bacon grease will attract bears and coon, not sure about deer. As for the pumpkins, deer will eat them up if you place them out. They like them a lot.

Don't get too attractant oriented. It's hard to beat good ol' scouting and let the sign tell you where the deer have been and are going to be.

I put our halloween pumpkins out every year, and the ones we didn't carve as well, right behind the house on the edge of the woods. It takes a few days or more for the whole ones to get mushy, but the deer will actually open them up with a hoof swipe and go to town.

You could always give vanilla a try. Of course peanut butter works well too.

Interesting !! that's a new one Bacon Grease huh I Think you'd see more bear than deer, But who knows.
Personally my favorite is a gallon of apple cider poured on the ground and some peanut butter smeared on a few trees

i screw the lid of the peanut butter jar to the tree then cut the end of the jar off...

that and grape coolaid mixed with the feed corn.

but if you have property you hunt every year , or it's your own , try to get your hands on some persimmon trees...they absolutely love persimmons
